David Lam Tak-luk spins this affable if formulaic romantic comedy about a trio of comely roommates looking for love: Bo-bo (Chingmy Yau Suk-ching) is a diligent lass working at a planned parenthood clinic; Siu-la (Lily Chung Suk-wai) is a slow-witted professional sex worker; and Cola (Anita Lee Yuen-wah) is an enthusiast amateur given to serial one-night stands. After Bo-bo meets a handsome, rakish triad named Kit (Mark Cheung Ho-nam), she moralizes on whether she should go to bed with him or stay faithful to her boyfriend who's studying in France. Cola falls for hunky businessman Wong (Sunny Chan Kam-hung) and frets over his perpetual womanizing. And Siu-la falls for ornery nerd Fong (Lawrence Cheng Tan-shui) and makes a man out of him.
